Explore a revelatory new take on art in Britain after WW2 with the 'Postwar Modern' Art Exhibition at the Barbican Centre in London (March 12th)
A revelatory new take on art in Britain after the Second World War, a period when artists had to make sense of an entirely altered world.
Postwar Modern explores the art produced in Britain in the wake of a cataclysmic war. Certainty was gone, and the aftershocks continued, but there was also hope for a better tomorrow. These conditions gave rise to an incredible richness of imagery, forms and materials in the years that followed.
Focusing on ‘the new’, Postwar Modern features 48 artists and around 200 works of painting, sculpture, photography, collage and installation. It explores the subjects that most preoccupied artists, among them the body, the post-atomic condition, the Blitzed streetscape, private relationships and imagined future horizons. As well as reconsidering well-known figures, the exhibition foregrounds artists who came to Britain as refugees from Nazism or as migrants from a crumbling empire, in addition to female artists who have tended to be overlooked.
Opening times: Sun-Wed 10am-6pm (last entry 5pm), Thu-Sat 10am-8pm (last entry 7pm), Good Friday 12-8pm (last entry 7pm), Easter Monday 12-6pm (last entry 5pm), May Bank Holiday 2 May 12-6pm (last entry 5pm) and Jubilee Bank Holiday 3 Jun 12-8pm (last entry 7pm).
